- Legit.ng readers have expressed mixed reactions following a poll seeking to understand if married women should participate in the BBNaija show
- Some participants gave reasons as to why the show should strictly be for youths and single individuals
- However, there were others who noted that anyone should be able to be a part of the show since it’s a platform meant to better lives
Mixed reactions have started trailing the sixth season of the Big Brother Naija (BBNaija) reality show.
Like previous seasons, the Shine Ya Eyes edition also has some married housemates competing for the N90 million prize.
Niyi and Tega are the married contestants in the current season and both individuals have been very open about their marital status.
In light of this, Legit.ng recently carried out a social media poll to find out what people think about married women on the show.
This also follows the controversial drama that played out online after Tega was asked to participate in a truth or dare game where she allowed a male housemate to touch a ‘private’ part of her body.
Some participants in the poll argued in favour of married women freely participating in the show.

Saratu Sarauniya said:
"For me i don't see anything wrong with that as far as she will respect herself."
Oly Genevieve Mich-Abone said:
"Did Big Brother Naija Organisers say the game is for singles alone? I see it as being senseless to criticize someone who chose to do something that makes her happy and then with the husband's support. It's her life and choice not yours. So take a chill."

Maria shatters Pere's heart
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that housemates in the Shine Ya Eyes season started expressing romantic feelings for each other.
Some days ago, Pere woke Maria from her sleep to finally reveal how he feels about her and she did not hesitate to blow him off.
While some people likened Pere to a former housemate, Ozo, others were of the opinion that the pretty lady likes Whitemoney.
